best glass noodles....
What are your favourite restaurants for glass noodles aka bean thread?
Thanks for any suggestions!
i like them at bangkok paradise on queen west (just east of bathurst). in fact, i'd like to alert people to this restaurant - very fresh ingredients, well prepared, nice service. this place has been around since i was in high school (ie. since the early 90s), so it's had longevity, but i do worry about it now given that a thai chain restaurant set up next door to it. give it a try, chowhounds!
I always order:
-Cold Rolls ( refreshing! )
-Hot and Sour Soup ( I think the best in the city )
-Spring Rolls ( made fresh...soooo good, you can tell they're not made from frozen)
-Thick Curry Chicken ( usually I order with sticky rice )
-My fiance loves the Pad Thai...but I've had better.
Enjoy "hungryabbey!" Let me know what you think! : )
Thanks for all your tips;) Look forward to trying them soon...
I tried the pad woon sen at Real Thailand in the Annex last night when I happened to be in the neighbourhood...talk about disappointing. The noodles were way too salty and the fish sauce taste was overpowering. It contained with 2 rubbery shrimp and a whole lot of chicken.
I love the cold glass noodle salad at Young Thailand (Church, betwn Richmond & Adelaide)
and the pad won sen at Pi Tom (Alexander St, 1 block north of College, East of Yonge)
I havent tried any of the above, but I love glass noodles at the thai place on Steeles West, just east of Keele, by York University. I cant remember its name, Thai Bamboo.. something like that, but they make a WICKED stirfried glass noodle dish. Very yummy. Prices, what its actually called, I seriously cannot remember; all I can say it was yummy. I'll try to find details.
